Wow! Did this happen? I hadn’t previously read it four hundred thousand times here in the past two weeks.....(sarcasm intended). Newt Gingrich endorsed the Republican winner of a Republican primary! Gasp!
Which of our candidates endorsed Bill Clinton for President and said George W. Bush was “too Conservative” to support for President?
Anyone? (Hint: wasn’t Newt)
Yeah sure why not? He is super cool in a debate. Who cares if he is an establishment guy. LOL
Scozzafava wasn’t a moderate. She was a liberal. She endorsed the Dem in the race over the tea party candidate because the latter was not ‘pro-choice’.
Thanks for the reminder. Blow off the Tea Party Candidate for a RINO.

Like I was saying.
‘Ginrich is as dangerous as a wounded wolverine’
He voted for Clinton in 1992, the last year he voted for a Democrat. He voted for Bush in 2000.
For Newt, this happened in 2009, not over 15 years ago.
He said George W. Bush was “too Conservative” to support in 2000.
There was no Republican primary. Scozzafava was chosen by the GOP County Chairmen in the district.
And the selection method was reportedly abused...
I’m just sick of perpetual politicians who always think its their turn.
The point is, he supported the Republican on the ticket. No scandal.
I say USE Newt like a Talking Donkey....
Don’t elect him... use him..
Newt is the smartest con-man in any room he enters. He’s my 4th/5th choice up from near last. He was in the arena and did some good things (that was light-years ago politically speaking). I have not been overly impressed since his SOTH days. That being said, I would vote for him any day over Obama.
On the other hand there are so terribly many candidates it's hard to do that ~ so the New York state committee should have made sure people knew what she really was but they didn't.
Not having properly advised people they had a Changling on the list they should have all resigned and committed seppuku as soon as possible.
I think Skuzzyfuzzy ended up joining the New York Democrats.
That same district later on put a real Republican on the list in a later election. He won. Then he started offering his body to nubile young ladies on the internet.
See, it really can get worse.
In the marketplace of ideas - Newt has the best selection & great products.
However, the American people are searching the aisles for the most attractive gift wrap: nice hair, tall, good-looking, perfect wife, virtuous life, no runs, no fouls, no errors.
Theres nothing we dont know about Newt and he knows we know. Thats a good start!!!!
